It's not about that...
24 May 2010 | by See all my reviews

You're confused. You're disappointed. You may even be angry.

I get it.

You wanted answers and clarity and the dots to be connected. You wanted to understand just what the hell was going on and why. You didn't get that. And it seemed like the writers didn't have any interest at all in tying off the loose ends.

That's because they didn't.

This show was about human beings. The lives they lead. The choices they make. The beliefs that drive them. The fears that cripple them. Their triumphs and their failures. Their loves and their battles. It's about us and the little worlds we make for ourselves with the people we are connected to.

And look around you... How many questions do you have for your world? How much of it do you not understand and how often does it just get so ridiculously complicated that you can't even remember why you were putting in the work in the first place? How much of our time is spent searching for the answers to the questions, the complications, and the challenges? Answers that never seem to really stick. And how much does that obsessive search trip us up in appreciating what we've already been given?

That was the point of this show, guys and gals. There are questions all around us and we want so desperately to have them answered by the end. But when we get to the end -- the true end -- what we find is that those all-too critical questions and their elusive answers no longer matter; that it was never really about that at all. We just thought it was.

That's the true victory of LOST. What we've been given is a story whose structure and execution mirrored perfectly what the story itself was about. (It even struggled in those respects just as mightily as its characters in their respects from time to time.) We found ourselves in a place we don't really understand, surrounded by people we're bound to but do not yet know. And we fight and squabble and bicker and love and laugh and learn. And those of us who get it just a little bit more than the rest give their best to make sense of it all and do the right thing -- one mistake at a time. Those who realize that getting what we've been looking for lies more in sacrifice than selfishness.

What makes a story worth telling or a life worth living are not the questions or the answers or the sequence of events. It's the people we share it all with; the people along the ride for every stupid little moment that we can't figure out.

I thank the creators. And I hope that those of you still fixated on what makes the island move or Walt and the bird can begin to see that you've missed the point entirely. To remember, to let go and then just move on at peace...
